Nagasaki, Japan- Flowers, a Walk in the Park and a Musical Sendoff

Nagasaki was our last port in Japan. While probably best known in the world as the second city the US detonated an atomic weapon over to conclude World War II, it is also a beautiful coastal city. Our day walking around after a mandatory face-to-face meeting with port officials was cut short by rain. 

First, in keeping with the Japanese and their love of pretty flowers, several images reimagined as paintings in various styles...

Music to leave port by....

A high school band, with the addition of electric bass guitars and a drummer (who started all the songs). They were really quite good and VERY enthusiastic. Playing from the dock as we left.
